Samuel L. Jackson (born December 21, 1948) is an American character actor. After gaining critical acclaim for his role in Jungle Fever in 1991, director Spike Lee mentored him into roles in films such as Patriot Games, Amos & Andrew, True Romance, and Jurassic Park.

In 1994, he was cast as the hitman Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction. The film was written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. Jackson's performance received several award nominations and critical acclaim. Jackson collaborated with Tarantino again in 1997 playing Ordell Robbie, the leader of an arms dealing ring, in the Elmore Leonard adaptation Jackie Brown. He had a cameo role as Rufus the piano player in Tarantino's Kill Bill films (Vol. 1 in 2003 and Vol. 2 in 2004). He played Stephen, the loyal man servant of a slave owner, in Tarantino's Western drama Django Unchained (2012).

He completed a multi-picture deal with Marvel Entertainment, playing Nick Fury, appearing in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Captain Marvel (2019) and Avengers: Endgame (2019).

Jackson is the second-highest grossing movie star of all time, his films having grossed a total of $4.91 billion dollars in the United States alone.

Significant Roles


  • "I see [Marvel movie producer] Avi Arad a lot, because we live in the same neighborhood," Jackson said. "I express my interest in [working with him]. I always wanted to be Iron Man, because he was always like the rich dude who created this whole thing. He's not really kept as a superhero, he just creates stuff to make himself a superhero as a rich guy."
  • "We're all really good friends. It's kind of funny to stand around in a room and see everybody. Thor is standing there in his costume. Captain America. Sometime's he's dressed and sometimes he's not. Scarlett is there as Black Widow. Robert Downey is there. He very seldom has his Iron Man costume on when he's just hanging around with his buds. It's just amazing to look around the room and see all of those guys there and go, 'Okay. This is cool.' "
